Here’s another thing to do on the North Fork: indoor golf at Endless Round Golf


There’s no need to stash away the golf clubs on the North Fork for the winter.

The new Endless Round Golf in Mattituck now gives golfers the chance to tee off year-round — on virtual recreations of Pebble Beach, St. Andrews and more than 250 other courses — through the use of simulator technology that breaks down swings and allows for virtual competition.

“The amount of data that the radar captures is insane,” said co-owner Bryan Zissel, who has worked in tech for nearly 20 years. “It captures the swing path, club head speed, the path to impact, launch angle, everything.

“It captures more data than an average golfer will ever see.”

Housed inside the former home of Times-Review Media Group at 7785 Main Road, Endless Round Golf is the product of three friends whose ties go back to their days as classmates in Southold.

“We went to school together and we grew up playing soccer, basketball, doing kids stuff,” Zissel said.  “And as we got older, we turned more to golf.”

Along with Dan Hagerman, the owner of North Tribe Strength & Conditioning in Southold and John-Michael Peters, who lives in Arizona and works in finance, Zissel tapped into a tech-friendly trend that’s gaining popularity among some of professional golf’s biggest names.

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy have announced plans for TGL, an indoor golf league in which PGA Tour players will launch shots into a simulator screen and on a green inside a Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. arena. [TGL officials said last week that the league’s planned January launch has been delayed until early 2025 after the roof collapsed on the Florida indoor-golf facility.]

The growth of indoor golf helped drive the idea for the Zissel, Hagerman and Peters.

“It was this time last year, right around the time of the outdoor golfing season ending,” Zissel said. “I approached Dan and said, ‘Hey man, I’m seeing those simulators pop up everywhere, what do you think?’”

The idea has now taken shape inside a 6,000-square-foot space where four bays have been equipped with screens and TrackMan simulator technology. Players can bring their own golf clubs and golf balls, though a limited number of rental clubs are available.

During peak hours — which extend from 5 p.m. Thursday through Sunday — the bays can be booked for up to four golfers for $80 an hour. Off peak, the price is $60 an hour. Tee-time bookings are recommended five to seven days in advance.

Endless Round Golf is available to be booked for private training or events.

“We wanted to build something for the community where it could attract anyone, whether you’re incredibly good at golf or just working on your game,” Zissel said. “There’s something for everybody.”

That includes leagues for men, women and juniors as well as instruction from local pros — Becky McDaid of Friar’s Head in Riverhead and Michele Warde of North Fork Country Club in Cutchogue. 

“We provide a space for them to give lessons throughout the winter,” Zissel said.

And with the North Fork’s population expanding beyond just the summer season, Endless Round Golf’s owners are optimistic about drawing big crowds of duffers year-round.

“So far, so good,” Zissel said. “Golf is a passion of ours, our families are involved and it was everybody’s dream to be able to create a business that is also a passion.”
